the election because you might remember the election wasn't decided that night and during the recount, that gave me the opportunity to receive a position of governor bush had won the election. everything lined up. that was perfect timing for me because right after he became president-elect i had the opportunity to ask him in person and actually took a page out of this political playbook. during the campaign it was going on in my head at that point that i would look them in the eye and asked him for the job. that is what i did at this party right after he became president-elect. >> host: what was his answer? >> guest: well he kind of looked at me and the longest handshake ever for me. he looked at me like he had never thought about it before and he said i really appreciate that and i will get back to you. a week later i received a call from the chief of staff office for an interview. it all happened very quickly. >> host: how many years did you spend with president bush? >> guest: well, if you count my time with him as a journalist , nearly two years. >> host: so you are at the white h
on testimony or questions, rather of max baucus, a democrat we should point out up for re-election. what is his concern, john? >> whenever he goes book to montana we hear from small businesses we don't know what is going on, we don't know what the rules are, we don't know what the costs are. one woman says i have four small business, each are below the 50 threshold to cover my employees. do i have to add up and do i have to cover or don't i? there are no rules or regulations. in this mess very few companies are highering new people because the uncertainty is so great. bill: he said small businesses have no idea what to do. they have no idea what to expect. he goes on to say you need data. do you have any data? you have only given me concepts, frankly and not data. do they not have that? are they still trying to figure it out too? >> jay rockefeller, democratic senator from west begin and one. architects of obamacare, told secretary sebelius a few weeks ago this is the most complicated piece of legislation congress ever passed and so far it is not working. bill: he said if it is not done right t
.s. flag. the funding would be granted to the puerto rico elections commission to conduct objective voter education and a vote on options that would resolve puerto rico's future political status. key congressional leaders in the house and the senate, republican and democrat alike, have already issued statements of support for the president's action, calling it an appropriate response to the local referendum. . my constituents may not have a vote in a government that makes national laws, but they do have a voice and they make that voice heard loud and clear in november. a budget reflects one's priorities and values. i support the president's budget because it shows respect for the democratically express the aspirations of the u.s. citizens that reside in puerto rico and it demonstrates a clear desire to move forward on this complex but critical issue. as the budget request states, the federally sponsored vote is to be one that would result for puerto rico's political status. the only way to resolve the status is through statehood or national sovereignty. puerto rico cannot resolve its stat
, elected official, law enforcement, they really present us with a set of complex questions. and above all, though, i have to repeat that the justice department, our federal united states department of justice, has the responsibility to enforce the controlled substances act. and that remains unchanged. to -- no state, no executive can nullify a statute that's been passed by congress. as the department of justice has noted, though, federal drug enforcement resources -- just like i did as a police chief -- we prioritize and target the serious crimes. serious crimes of drug dealing, violent crime and trafficking. and let's be clear that law enforcement officials take an oath of office to uphold federal law, and they're going to continue to pursue drug traffickers and drug dealers and transnational criminal organizations, all of which weaken our communities, and they pose very serious threats to our nation. and too often discussions about marijuana, though, dwell on this issue of legalization and whether making the drug more widely and easily available -- which it would be when it becomes lega

three trials, and 2000 for being an election year, and the republican party being famous for being spineless did nothing. helddent bush should have an immediate press conference, announced the justices on the supreme court are insane. these people are not bank robbers. they are harming terrorist. toy will not be given access lawyers, not given civilian trials. we will line them up against the wall and shoot them. host: we will have to leave it there. guest: the supreme court decision he was referring to in 2004 did not say they were required to go to article ii courts, and the detainees, lawyers were working very hard on behalf of the detainees and filed the first sue for access to the detainees and on release, weeks after they got there in january 2002, and i would say saidi have pushed for and publicly many times and luckily it is happening now, that especially the detainees before military commissions in the 9/11 as cole walmart, be given the most highly qualified, as defense counsel our country has produced. they have these council. the besthe lawyers are criminal defense lawye

is a very thorny problem for harry reid. in pass elections he run cam panes that very much focused on his very pro-gun stance. out in nevada it is a very important issue there. now that this is coming up, and as you pointed out in the your invery we're talking about the biggest changes to gun control legislation in decades or at least 15 years now. so how harry reid comes down on this and how much he really wants to see this bill, see the light of day is still up in the air a little bit. jon: as i understand it, there are only four republican senators who have, who have signified they will vote in favor of this manchin-toomey amendment? >> yeah. and there is even talk of amending the amendment so it might collect a few more republicans but the problem with doing that is, that if you were to do that you wind up very likely losing, losing votes on the other end. people saying that it is getting watered undo too much or that it is too, that the bill is turning too pro-gun and then you still have the same problem that harry reid and joe manchin, pat toomey have now, which is not enough votes
. the fact is, they held to what they said they would do. they held an election. they created a democracy. the people who won are surprised by the folks. it did not surprise others given the base of the country. they had a democracy. they had an election. it turned over their power and went back to the barracks. they have been an important ingredient to the people of israel. right now, the gauze the piece is holding because of the relationship and the intel to intel relationship. we do not want to lose that. i would love a rigid of love to make an economic effort larger, but as the chairman knows, we work with the chairman, and others, to try to have some component of economic assistance. unless there is economic reform in egypt, unless they can meet the imf standards, unless they reach out to the opposition, unless they create stability and a capacity to invite capital back from other countries, with the sense of security created, unless those things happen, right now, giving more money would actually be not too good avail. >> thank you. >> we go to tulsa of hawaii. presenceyou for your

it or were they afraid of losing re-election? >> you know, i think that there is something in between and that is representing the people of your state. unfortunately in many, many states, the more rural states, some of the gun organizations have made people afraid of any gun legislation as they claim each one will lead to the taking away of your gun. it so happens the background checks would not affect law-abiding gun owners. i believe in the second amendment. i think there is a right to bear arms and i don't think liberals are right when they say it only applies to malicious, and i was saying that before the heller amendment. on the other hand, this bill only affects people who are felons, who are adjudicated mentally ill, who are spousal abusers. if you're a law-abiding gun owner this isn't going to interfere with your rights but some of these gun organizations, the nra in particular, they can't win on the merits of the arguments so they scare people and that's what they've done here. having said that, if you represent one of these rural states they think if you vouch for this it i

[inaudible] >> think he actually didn't know at that point. point. the poll said really shifted. this was a month or two before. we had actually done pretty well in the polls. some thought i wouldn't sign a pledge but i did. i wanted to be no question that i was supporting the republican nominee. i said i was going to support the nominee once my dad knowledged his nomination was over. >> senator i want to salute you to mentioning mcconnell and thoreau in the same sentence. i wanted to ask you what president of the other party do you most admire and why? >> probably grover cleveland. oh okay. >> we have lots of rules here. >> i have to ask her his -- answer his question? in my lifetime a democrat i guess kennedy was president when i was six months old. he was shot in 63 in the summer or the fall?
reelection. my question is you should not be worried about the election. this is too fundamental to go against not only democracy, but denying a vote on the floor of the u.s. senate literally has no justification. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. literally. the president's press secretary yesterday, jay carney. >> the newtown families are here because their children were murdered. they are asking for the senate to do something that is common sense. >> stephanie: i can't imagine a sadder day for american. the six year olds were blown away at point-blank range, and the united states congress woman who was shot in the face and we can't even get enough democrats to vote for this? where are we politically in america and where do we go from here? >> you may hear from my tone that i'm a little bit of horse. this is a different reaction than i usually have. i write a column purple nation where i try to look at things both ways. i am somewhat astonished but i see no nuance on the question to democrats how could you not allow a vote on this? and i want those names, and they may be f
of a shift that is, she's the democrat. mitt romney won that district by 18 points in the last election in november. she's up by 9 over mark sanford. so he has himself some problems. >> when is that election? >> two weeks away. >> bill: coming up. maybe republicans should have thought twice before they figured they could bring mark sanford back. jim, ken is calling from san rafael california. ken, good morning. >> caller: good morning. i would like to ask the ambassador, are the noncombatants -- i don't know if they're noncombatants or not the ones still in guantanamo, that we do not deem to be a threat, have they been released? we heard almost a year ago that this decision was made that they weren't a problem. have they been released? if not why not? >> bill: good question, ken. >> the answer is no, they have not been released. there's 80 some of those people who have been cleared by all of the intelligence, military and law enforcement agencies. they have not been released. i'm not quite sure what the holdup is but as i understand is it, all that needs to be done is for the president
williams was once a high profile lawyer and newly elected justice of the peace. when he was convicted of stealing three computer terminals from a county building. worth less than $1,500. mark hasy and mike mcclelland handled the case. williams claimed they tampered with evidence and after the trial both hasy and mcclelland began carrying a gun. eric williams' lawyer denies that he is involved in any of this. and he has yet to be charged. you mentioned that news conference begins in 30 minutes. we expect charges will be filed at that time. >> megyn: wow. thank you. the chairman of the house homeland security committee telling me a short time ago that he believes homeland security wants to talk to at least two people in connection with this boston bombing. in moments we hope to find out more on the investigation when the attorney general of the united states testifies on capitol hill.ok muscle loss with exercise and ensure muscle health. i've got revigor. what's revigor? it's the amino acid metabolite, hmb to help rebuild muscle and strength naturally lost over time.

hispanic voters into the election threat which if history is any indicator would be a good threupbg fo thing for democrats. joe trippi a former howard dean campaign manager and fox news contributor. do you believe the immigration bill on balance would be a bigger net benefit to democratic politicians? >> i think it will benefit both parties. one of the problems that the republicans have had is that their opposition to immigration reform to reaching a compromise has really hurt them in the latino and hispanic communities. it's one of the reasons that after george bush got 4 4% of their votes in 2008 -- swore, excus2004, excuse me. the hispanic support has been declining nationwide. finding a compromise would help republicans start to talk to hispanics. they are much morey lidge justly -- they are a very religious community. there are tkpwrourpbdz on values and other things that republic republicans could talk to the hispanic community and actually start winning their votes again as george bush had reached out to them. in the very beginning as the people become citizens and are eligible
the last election, wall street ceos go to washington and have a meeting with the president. they come back and they would whisper, he doesn't get us, he doesn't like us, this is miserable, this is awful. has anything changed meaningfully in terms of the relationship and the way you think the president and wall street are approaching each other? >> i'll speak for our side. i can't speak for the president of the united states. but i would say this last meeting we had with the president a few days ago was constructive. the members of the financial service this morning made it very clear that we want to play a role in 3406g the economy forward and having a set of conditions in our capital market that would add to lending. and putting people back to work. >> how about in the way he's approaching it, meaning people would come back and say, andrew, it's lip service is. very happy to walk into the white house, but great, a big nothing. >> i would say there has been a lot more outreach on the part of this administration towards the business community in general and the financial sector. and we've b
, the votes that were cast. votes have consequences just as elections do, and the people of america will remember our job now is to raise awareness, spread the rage that we feel, raise the rage and organize and enable and empower citizens to be heard and heeded by this body, whether in the next election or before then, and my hope is that it will be before then because we must act before the next election, and that action is an opportunity, a historic moment that we must seize. not everyone in this body turned its back on the victims of newtown or on this cause yesterday, and there were genuine profiles in courage on this floor in this body. first and foremost, senator manchin who led the fight on background checks and forged a compromise that should have won the day. and republicans who chose to buck their own leadership and follow their hearts and consciences, senators mccain, collins, kirk and toomey. the american people will thank you. and there are democrats who took some tough votes. tough votes particularly for their states. and i want to thank senators hagan, casey, landrieu
